The correct standard for falsifying documents under perjury

"I called the DA because when somebody signs under penalty of perjury and it appears that they may have lied, then I need to get the DA involved," San Jose's acting City Clerk Toni Taber said Monday.
Has anyone at the Almanac or within Atherton done the same for the former Atherton city council member and mayor who said under penalty of perjury that he lived at an address in Atherton to vote in Atherton, but all appearances are that he was lying? That this home had been sold months earlier, and been bulldozed to the ground when the perjury took place?
Or maybe it's better to wait until the Lewis/Wiest axis gets the cops their raise before dealing with this very messy issue.
All indications are the media does not want to report on this story. It's funny. Some thirteen years ago, it was considered incredibly newsworthy.
But then again, look at what happened to Brian Bothun when he broke that story that got the Atherton police chief fired. Can you blame any reporter for not wanting that type of retaliation to happen to them?
